Rosé Roundup: Where to Drink Pink in the Valley

Let’s be honest…it looks good on the gram and good in our hands. Our obsession with rosé has reached new heights and it’s not hard to see why. It’s Millennial pink-pretty, it amps up our aesthetic and it kind of makes us feel like we’re in the South of France. It’s even been referred to as the Hampton’s Gatorade before, so yeah, we’re all on board for a good glass of the pink drink. And apparently so is the rest of the world because June 9 is National Rosé Day. In honor of our new favorite day, we rounded up some of the best places around the Valley to enjoy rosé on June 9 and beyond. 

Oh, and to cater to your addiction even more, you can now get a keg of rosé delivered straight to your door from Bridge Lane Wine. That’s 26 bottles of wine or 130 glasses. The thirst is real. Shop them here.
